Why Wiki?

  • Easy to use
    • Web-based
    • Simple syntax (don't need to know HTML)
  • Anyone can make changes -- no more waiting for the Webmaster to get around to your requested changes.
  • Many free and open source options
  • Flexible and extensible


Why Not?

  • Too open -- "I don't want someone changing my writing!"
  • Disorganized
  • Vandalism and spam
